What Happens?

I was going through some of my old 'books' today. The ones where you write down everything you want to say and don't, the ones that allow you to be yourself. I started mine about 3 years ago. I found something today that particularly peaked my interest. With the holidays right around the corner, I figured this is something we can all keep in mind.

What happens to the children,
the ones who live in the projects,
and grow up to be 'gangsters',
because that's all they see?
What happens to the children,
who see nothing but hate,
the ones who hide their bruises,
the ones who live their lives in fear?
What happens to the children who don't have homes?
The ones who don't eat somedays?
What happens to the ones who are misunderstood?
The ones who aren't good enough,
who have problems?
What happens to the children who never know love,
who ones who never know their parents?
What do they become?

I reread this twice and now that I think about it even more it reminds me as to how fortunate I am. This holiday season and always, remember the ones who don't have it so good, and be kind. Sometimes a smile is all they need.
